2016 Christmas Ornaments

Every year Dave and I exchange an ornament that we’ve made.  This tradition started back in 2005 when we were dating.  The very first ornament he made for me is the birdhouse at the center bottom of the tree. It’s amazing to see that our little tree is almost full of these special ornaments.

It’s fun looking at the ornaments we’ve made over the years. It’s just a little tradition that I really love.

Hope you’re having a wonderful holiday. Won’t be long and it will be another new year!
